Trustee recruitment

The next few years will be an exciting and demanding time for the Galapagos Conservation Trust. Two major programmes focussed on restoring the island of Floreana, and on the pollution and danger to wildlife caused by plastics, mean we have the chance to make a significant difference in Galapagos. As we move forward, we are seeking to further develop our board of trustees. We are especially interested to talk to potential trustees who have fundraising expertise.

Our trustees are passionate about the Galapagos Islands, are committed to using their skills to ensure our organisation is well governed, in accordance with UK charity law, and make the most of every opportunity to further our mission.

Trustees attend board meetings (currently four times per annum), and participate in working committees. You don’t have to have visited the Islands to become a trustee, although we know that anyone who has visited will no doubt share our dedication to protecting the Archipelago. The role is unpaid but immensely rewarding in terms of lifelong learning and positive impacts on Galapagos, together with wider impacts in conservation globally.

You can see who our current trustees are here.

If you have any queries or would like to receive an application pack please contact Lisa Wheeler at

Deadline for applications is Sunday 29 April 2018.

Thank you so much for your interest, and for anything you do to support our important work.


Opportunities in Galapagos

Although Galapagos Conservation Trust does run and fund projects in Galapagos, we do not place volunteers or research students abroad. To find out more about volunteering in Galapagos please contact the Galapagos National Park or the Charles Darwin Foundation directly. If you would like to discuss current GCT projects with one of our team then please email your enquiry to

From time to time the Galapagos Conservation Trust requires the help of volunteers with skills in a particular field, usually to help us with a specific project or piece of work. This could be in anything from graphic design to research, marketing to human resources, facilitating workshops to proof reading, to writing blog pieces and articles.

GCT does not have any volunteer roles currently available but if you would like to express your interest in volunteering then please fill out our application form below. We will keep your details on our system for up to 12 months and will email you if a suitable volunteer role within our team comes available. Please note that due to high demand we are unable to answer all volunteer requests.
